Statement of Purpose
Throughout my time at the research lab at CIATEJ I worked for a solution to reduce the ratio of obesity in Mexico by providing fructans coming from Agave leaves as a prebiotic to treat this metabolic problem. I do believe we can treat this growing problem throughout the globe.
With this previously mentioned, I am really interested in doing my research in prebiotic, probiotic or a high nutritional value ingredient that can help with the prevention or treatment of metabolic syndromes such as obesity, diabetes, increased blood pressure conversely even providing higher nutritional food to people that does not suffer these aliments.
The subjects that will help me to obtain my goal of study would be Food Biochemistry as this is crucial to understand completely how to work with the research to improve food as a syndrome treatment or nutrient value, Bioengineering because of the importance in the control of fermentation processes, Food Microbiology due to the possible microorganisms that can affect the quality of prebiotics and/or probiotics and finally, Food Toxicology since it is important to evade risks for the consumption of high value ingredients.
I want to enter a research lab to assist in different as early as possible so I can get more experience to aid my study objective in the future. Adding to this, I believe teamwork is crucial to reach the best objectives in an efficient way so I will try to get a study group with my classmates to make a review of subjects seen at the Major, this can help us to exchange ideas, points of view and getting a better fellowship.
I believe that making this thesis will aid me not only in finding products that have potential to be used as treatment for metabolic syndromes as I did with my past research but to completely prove how can we use them in the food industry making them have a higher value proposition.
